On Thanksgiving day, 2000, we lost my cousin Kaaren to Cancer.
Kaaren was an incredible inspiration to a lot of people. There has not been a nicer person, and in all the years she battled her different forms of cancer, she always maintained a dignity and grace that was an inspiration to all.
I had sworn off marathons forever, but for some reason I felt like I needed to do something. Kaaren had that effect on people. So I decided I’d try another one, to raise money towards cancer research. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

Me, Bao, and Matt. Old guy (with bad knees), US Marine, and young studly soccer player. Which one would you put your money on to win?
Damn Kenyans had a slight head start!
Hey look, I won! Where’s Matt? Where’s Bao? Ha ha ha ha!
Piece of cake..
Beaten by the old guy – but FINISHED!!
I had to rub it in!
